All of us have a story to tell and a legacy to leave. Below are inspiring stories of faithful supporters like you. Each has included World Vision in their estate plan so they can continue to support World Vision after their lifetime - it's their legacy of love to the world's children.
Judy Andrews, New York
World Vision partner since 1975
Judy first heard about World Vision from her mother. In 1975, she became a child sponsor herself and has continued to sponsor many children in the years since then.
Judy believes sponsorship holds incredible potential for change. "It's great to know that I am not only helping an individual child, but also the entire community," she explains.
After her mother passed away, Judy decided to update her own will. She felt compelled to follow her heart and honor her mother's example of giving; so, in addition to remembering her local church and others in her plans, she chose to include World Vision. She wanted to include organizations that had meaning to her during her lifetime, explaining, "World Vision was one of them because they have such a good mission and do great work in the world. ...It's a way that after I'm gone I can continue to help people."
For Judy, continuing to give after her own lifetime makes perfect sense: "I know that my gift to World Vision has eternal value. It just seems the right thing to do."
